I'm motivated to find a video that shows women doing awesome stuff too!

Or you could just watch this a hundred or so times in a row, until you can no longer tell the difference between Tony Horton and Tom Kenny.

Did anyone else get the 'salesman' dude sitting in his car, chanting along to an AC/DC song? 'Cause that guy's a goon (i.e., he failed to motivate me).

I came across this video about the theory of motivation and it sort of blew my mind.

I had never seen this one before, so it made me laugh. I sent it to a friend who wrote back, "You. Nutshell."

I feel pretty good about that. Hoping she meant the penguin.

Couldn't you all run out of steam a little faster? I'm already tired of the crowding at the gym.

I love those RSA Animate vids, phaedon! Ok, I found the stunt reels page for the V10 women. Pretty badass. Now I'm twice as motivated to get off my butt and go work out with the cheesy P90x guy (he really cracks me up...I love watching how everybody else in the videos react/deal with him).

I resolved not to drink buttloads of beer while killing mofos on the multiplayer on Call of Duty: Black Ops. So far I'm not doing that well.

I haven't been able to find it, but the one that goes something like "This cake is a failure. You are a failure, too. And no one will ever love you." is pretty good. (And the cake really does look a mess.)

Okay, I love this. Thank you so much for posting it, mccarty.tim.

My new year's resolution was to hunt down, capture, torture and kill the next person that calls me a bigot. I fully realise that there is a degree of irony about this.

No, my problem is I resolved to finish more games, but after all the sales I never run out of Steam.

We are what we repeatedly do.
I guess Aristotle fucked up a lot. Cuz that's what he was.

I got one just now that was Courage Wolf saying:

The Cops Are Here?

[WOLF]

Sucks to Be Them!

And I'm still laughing about it.

I'm going to spend all night watching RSA videos instead of writing my novel, aren't I?

Man, that RSA Animate "Drive" talk is fabulous.

You guys want to keep going? Perhaps this will help.

Also, I consider Courage Wolf to be 4chan's Tyler Durden. Wise, courageous to the point of being chaotic, and completely a construction of their imagination.
